Workout Tip: 3-1-0 Tempo Push ups

I love push ups! Anyone who has trained with me knows that I love them. They are versatile, multi leveled and can be done anywhere.
There are many ways to make a push up more difficult but one of my favourites is the 3-1-0 Tempo Push up.
It increases the time under tension thereby increasing its muscle building properties.
It’s easy:
Start in the elevated pushup position with your arms straight and locked out. No slowly lower your chest to the ground for a count of 3. Then hold for a 1 second count. Finally drive through the palms of your hands back to full extension.
That’s it. Aim for sets of 10 and go from there.
A perfect chest and tricep builder for hotels, the park or your own living room!
